Most of the shows featured in this video were legit, a few of them weren't. Most of these aired live, so expect the occasional technical fault.

|1950's Television: ''You Bet Your Life'' - Secret Word: Voice|
An episode of the hugely popular 1950's Television series "You Bet Your Life", featuring the comic talents of Groucho Marx. A "comedic quiz show", much of this program's humor was improvised, although Groucho usually would have a very basic idea on who would appear each episode. Like most 1950's quiz shows, it wasn't rigged, but the scandals involving "Twenty One", "Dotto" and "The $64,000 Question" caused ratings to decline...

Another 1957 episode of the popular 1950s series "The Price is Right", hosted by Bill Cullen. I think this is the "elk's head" episode.

|Bingo At Home (circa 1958) (first half of 60-minute episode)|
A partial episode of a local (New York City) television series called "Bingo at Home". This series aired on station WABD-TV. The station produced many fine TV series in the 1950s, but this is probably one of the their weakest efforts. Hosted by Monty Hall, and with original commercials. Sound quality is extremely poor with very heavy hiss, and at times it is impossible to hear what anyone is saying.
